THE WOMAN AT POINT SUR. Poems. Robinson Jeffers.


New York: Boni & Liveright, (1927). Signed limited edition. Hardcover. #132/250 signed by Jeffers. This book was Jeffers' most ambitious at the time. He thought that this was to be his greatest work, but this narrative poem, by far the longest he would ever write, lacks narrative drive; the wandering, distracted story-arc that he had conceived for it seemed to collapse under its own self-indulgent weight, and as if that weren’t enough, Jeffers could not leave his misconception of Nietzsche-as-nihilist alone. A very good copy with a little browning at spine and some flaking to spine title, as well as tears to the glasssine wrapper . A solid copy. Item #14260

Price: $300.00
